Pros

They have nice friendly people' and you get the chance to work with a vast array of technologies. Also, they trust you to make the right decisions with projects.

Cons

I was full time supplemental, which is a fixed contact for 3 years. It doesn't have much for career advancement potential. Great for just out of college people, but mid to senior people will find it very hard to be hired in as regular IBM.

Advice to Management

Establish a better career path for senior level developers.

    Pros

    Great company with tremendous people and resources. Benefits and compensation packages are very strong. Extensive job options allow for upward mobility. Strong in the local community.

    Cons

    Large and slow at times. Many of the tools and databases are outdated, ironic for the world's premier information technology corporation. Workload expectations can be high.

    Pros

    Flexibility, working from home (though recently that's being cut)
    It's a job (?)

    Cons

    Too many to mention:
    - company is entirely finance driven
    - no perks to working here
    - relatively miserable pay and bonuses
    - no stock options for a long time now
    - too much management

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is completely disjoint from employees and doesn't give a hoot about them.
